FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Two North Dakota State University students running as a team for student body president and vice president are basing their platform on allowing alcohol sales during Bison football games at the Fargodome.

Robert Kringler is a junior majoring in history and Aaron Weber is a sophomore majoring in agricultural communications. They believe that allowing beer sales during games will cut down on binge drinking and “encourage safer consumption habits.”

The pair says that similar changes at institutions like the University of North Dakota and University of Minnesota have shown to decrease alcohol-related incidents during sporting events

Kringler and Weber sent out a news release Wednesday outlining their “Your Campus, Your Voice” platform.

School officials could not be reached for comment.
